It is time lads! Your mate is getting married and you know you need to give him the best send-off as possible, into the world of balls and chains, trouble and strife and all things husband related.
The most important factor of your mate’s stag is to make sure that people come. It sounds simple, obvious even, but actually have you thought it through? Everyone may be up for it, but consider the cost involved. Keep prices as low as possible on the basics, to lure loads of lads into turning up on the day.
Over the winter in some parts of the world, incorporating some football themed action into your weekend shouldn’t be very difficult at all. You can even make a full event of it and book a cheap Travelodge hotel near Stamford Bridge and Craven Cottage (ideal for Chelsea and Fulham fans, retrospectively), or a Trafford Travelodge up north, if your mate’s more of a Man U fan.
Sort the basics before you get involved in any in-depth planning activity planning! Making sure you have got your rooms secured and transport arranged is pretty much the foundation of whatever mayhem you get up to while you are away. There is no stag party without these little things.
Lads are generally easier to please than the lady-types. There is not necessarily any need to theme a stag party, apart from including a bit of sport, a bit of action and a bit of a tipple. The theme is stag, how you enhance that is up to you.
Speaking of which, tailor your weekend to include activities you know the stag will love. Whether it is motorsports, adrenaline junkie activities, paintballing, footie – whatever he’s into make it happen and make it epic. Who knows, it could be the last time the lads get together for a good while.
Look online for deals and discounts. “Be cheeky, a shy bairn gets nowt”, as the Geordie’s say, and it’s very true. Ask for group price cuts and try and get the stag in for free, for whatever you book. Little savings here and there can make a real difference to the overall cost of your break, making it more affordable for everyone involved.
Perhaps do what the missus says and book somewhere to grab a bit of grub. Eating probably isn’t on the forefront of anyone’s mind, unless the stag is a real foodie, but with so many of you expecting to dine at the same time, booking a table is advisable.
Add something a ‘little unuuuuusual’ to the events of the weekend. No, not Russell Brand, although it’s appreciated you noticed the reference. Think out of the box, while every stag can expect to go out hitting the bars and clubs until late, they might not expect starting the afternoon off with a brewery or distillery tour.
Finally, yes, you all love the guy, but he’s a stag and he has be the brunt of at least one or two ill-humoured jokes over the weekend. Speak with his “best buds” and pull some secrets out of the bag. Shipping him off abroad is never advisable.
Let’s get the party started! Book your cheap group accommodation online today, and get the transport sorted. It’s time boys, it’s time.
